# C Program to Generate Fibonacci Series

«
»

This is a C program to generate fibonacci series.

Problem Description

This C Program generates fibonacci series.

Problem Solution

In fibonacci series the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 0 and 1 and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two. For example fibonacci series is 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8,13, 21…………

Program/Source Code

Here is source code of the C program to generate fibonacci series. The C program is successfully compiled and run on a Linux system. The program output is also shown below.

```/*
* C program to generate Fibonacci Series. Fibonacci Series
* is 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 ...
*/
#include <stdio.h>

void main()
{
int  fib1 = 0, fib2 = 1, fib3, limit, count = 0;

printf("Enter the limit to generate the Fibonacci Series \n");
scanf("%d", &limit);
printf("Fibonacci Series is ...\n");
printf("%d\n", fib1);
printf("%d\n", fib2);
count = 2;
while (count < limit)
{
fib3 = fib1 + fib2;
count++;
printf("%d\n", fib3);
fib1 = fib2;
fib2 = fib3;
}
}```
Program Explanation

In this C program, we are reading the limit to generate the Fibonacci series using limit variable. In Fibonacci series the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 0 and 1 and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two. For example Fibonacci series is 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21…………

Initially assign the value of ‘fib1’ variable as 0, the value of ‘fib2’ variable as 1 and the value of ‘count’ variable as 2. While loop is used to check the condition that the value of ‘count’ variable is less than the value of ‘limit’ variable.

If the condition is true then execute the loop. Compute the value of ‘fib1’ variable and the value of ‘fib2’ variable then assign the value to ‘fib3’ variable. Increment the value of ‘count’ variable by 1. Assign the value of ‘fib2’ variable to ‘fib1’ variable and the value of ‘fib3’ variable to ‘fib2’ variable. Print the Fibonacci series using printf statement.
